Safest Off-Lease Cars to Consider

Leasing really started taking off in recent years, which means there's tons of lease-returns coming in right now on vehicles that are two-to-three years old. These are excellent used vehicles to consider purchasing - as the original leasee has taken on the brunt of depreciation, while the vehicle has likely been well-maintained, and should have a long life ahead of it.

Forbes recently compiled a list of what they consider to be the safest off-lease vehicles coming in right now. The safety data was compiled using IIHS (Insurance Institute for Highway Safety) stats. The full list of vehicles are below.

As always, I recommend using TrueCar No Haggle and CarsDirect to see the lowest prices your local dealers are willing to offer.

3 Steps Every Car Buyer Needs to Take to Save Maximum Money

The key to getting the best deal is to gather price or lease bids from as many local dealers as possible. Then shop that best price around until no one can beat it. Here are the steps:

Step 1 Get Prices From My Trusted Network

Select the vehicle you're interested in to see if there are local dealers in my network who will provide you with their best upfront price. You will get direct access to an internet sales manager who you can further negotiate with online (no need to visit dealership).

Step 2 Get Prices From TrueCar / CarsDirect

TrueCar, and CarsDirect are my top 2 online price quote recommendations. These services show you pre-negotiated prices from dealers closest to you - and the deals are usually pretty decent. But remember, you can still negotiate further.
